Ah, it's been a while, dear Friend. I have missed you.
Ready, you are doing it, really and truly beginning life in recovery. I klnow it has been a long haul for you, but you are doing it! Day at a time. I take my whole life one day at a time now. Deal with today, let tomorrow happens when it happens. But, ready... we are dealing with a DAY at a time now, not minute to minute wondering if we could survive the detox and withdrawal! Now this is sometyhing to sing and dance about, huh? We are in revival mode now. Chuckles.
Jump and shout and spin araound, Ready... you are on the other side! yes, there will still be some struggle times ahead, but you have proven to yourself that you are up to the task, Sweetpea... and you were the only one who ever doubted yourself. Smiles.
I know the legal questions keep you on edge, but wanna know what I think? I think it is one of those backwards blessings. No way dare you take anything because if you get a visit from the police and you are highj, then you would have to kiss any chance you might have goodbye. God is taking care of you.
I am so proud you are still in treatment and going to meetings... and chairing them once a week! You have a solid plan in place and are working it. I have spiritual arms around you, Ready, and I am squeezing tight. I am just so proud and happy for you.
You stay strong, Girl.. strength has always been in you.. you just didn't recognize it. Step 4 is looking inside yourself, right? well, look at what you have come through and see your strength as a positive trait to constantly keep in force in your life. The doubts... and, Ready, sometimes you are a real doubting Thomas there... it is time for the doubts to go. We are what we choose to be in life. The time to dwell on the past is over because too mmuch happiness lies ahead form us to squander time gathering it.
Always with hope
